Pours a solid inky black into my pint glass, topped with a light brown/tan head. The head is initially very puffy, but recedes to about a half inch, clinging to the glass. A little carbonation. Quite right for a stout. Aroma - sweet cream, roasted malts, coffee bean, oats, a hint baker's chocolate, and a very subtle woody/smokiness. At first when hitting the palate, there is a sense that it is not as strong as expected - the smoky flavor comes right in, with the middle being oats and roasted malt... then, there is a delay and in the fantastic finish a strong wave of bitterness/chocolate and coffee rushes in. perhaps a hint of hops in the outskirts somewhere. Very warming as it goes down, but still not overly 'alcoholic tasting,' and it is full bodied. it could coat the mouth a bit more. Overall, it's not quite a FBS, I am very fond of this one.

A- Pours pitch black and rather thick for a non-imperial stout. Small, half a finger head form and is medium tan in color. Head sticks around quite a while and laces tremendously.
S- Tons of dark, bitter coffee roasts here. This is pretty one dimensional, with the only dimension being the strong coffee.
T- Big, bitter, strong coffee right off the bat. I cannot overstate the level of dark coffee bitterness in this flavor, as it almost borderlines on hop bitterness. Moves a little towards burnt and smokey malts towards the middle of the drink. The end is just the same as the beginning, with big bitter coffee flavors, although the coffee bitterness weakens a little through the course of the drink, but not much at all.
M- This beer is rather thin and light on the tongue for the very heavy flavor profile it has to support. The combination of a thinner liquid, a fairly high level of carbonation, and a heavy flavor profile makes for a moderately drinkable beer, with the heavy coffee slowing you down.
Overall, if you like dark, strong, and bitter coffee, this beer is for you. Light in body for the coffee lover who wants to pound it, this beer is really strong in coffee flavor, and quite bitter too.
